Marcel Duchamp — The Selected Correspondence

200,00 kr.

“Duchamp left a large volume of correspondence, a thousand documents that form a valuable source for our knowledge of the artist’s personality and work. In his letters, Duchamp talks of his plans and works in progress. He discusses important projects, including the ‘ready-made’ — a concept that was radically to change the course of 20th-century art.
A selection of 285 of Duchamp’s most telling and important letters are here transcribed and published for the first time, in a book which will be essential for students and scholars with an interest in the artist. The editor has devoted twenty years to assembling traceable letters, translating and annotating them. Providing a detailed introduction to each correspondent, he also comments on the historical content of each letter. This volume of fundamental importance contains the letters in their original language, together with translations into English.”
